Mumbai, May 16: The makers of Akshay Kumar’s upcoming historical ‘Prithviraj’, which is based on the life and valour of Prithviraj Chauhan, had to create over 5,000 costumes and also used 500 different types of turbans during the shoot.
Akshay Kumar says, “Rarely do films take this much effort and embark upon such monumental tasks. Every element of our film which is based on the life of Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan has been dealt with utmost sincerity, authenticity and reverence.
“We have paid attention to the minutest details while making the film because we wanted this to be the most glorious retelling of Samrat Prithviraj’s life on the big screen,” he said.
The film’s director Chandraprakash Dwivedi says, “Detailing was key to making a film like ‘Prithviraj’. Like for example, 500 different turbans were created for the film. All these were authentic replication of the kinds of turbans worn by kings, masses, people of various professions at that time.
